Freedom

We call it the Declaration of Independence. Among other things it says, “We hold these truths to be self-evident, that all men are created equal, that they are endowed by their Creator with certain unalienable Rights, that among these are Life, Liberty, and the pursuit of Happiness.”

The framers acknowledged that all people, from all backgrounds, have dignity before their Creator.

Our forefathers believed there is a God who guides the affairs of mankind. And they clearly founded our nation on the teachings of one book. That book is the Bible.

Thomas Jefferson said, “The Bible is the cornerstone of liberty.”

And Abraham Lincoln said of the Bible in 1864, “All the good the Saviour [sic] gave to the world was communicated through this book. But for it we could not know right from wrong. All things most desirable for man’s welfare, here and hereafter, are to be found portrayed in it.”

However, in our pursuit of freedom I think we’ve lost sight of the Creator who gave us clear parameters to live by. We need to turn back to God.

Although we have forgotten Him, He has not forgotten us.

One thought on “Freedom”

  1. If we turn to God we have to turn to Jesus whose teachings lean toward pacifism, others first and turning the other cheek.
